Read it here. The picture artist is Quindare.
Lynn is sad and frightened, mourning the loss of her last living relative, and afraid of the scary hunchback that is One-eye, who, meanwhile, is going mentally crazy for breaking the oath he'd clung onto for his entire life.
After walking for a while, the two wolves encounter what One-eye describes as an Alpenhaus, a human den (or just a house) on the meadows. A dog from the house notices them, and One-eye, who just wants to die out of misery, gets him to alert his humans, who almost shoot both him and Lynn.
Just before the man shoots, however, One-eye's old instincts come back, and he flees, taking Lynn in his mouth with him. They both get away unharmed.
After this, One-eye gets another mental breakdown, but after that, slowly becomes nicer to Lynn. They walk for a long time, until they encounter another forest (later revealed to be Tannenwald), and both spend the night there. The morning after that, they decide to both stay there. One-eye explores and claims the territory for his own, after which he, exhausted, goes back to Lynn to start his new life as "father."
- The Title, "A New Life", is a reference to Lynnzl's very old and cancelled story New Life, which also starred Lynn and One-eye, but in a completely different setting.
